    printer issue, white prints on black background

    Hi janmcbaker,

    I’m Rey, your Independent Advisor, and a Windows user, just like you.

    I understand you are having trouble printing in which it prints in black background and white letters.

    Basically, this is printing inverted.

    May I ask the make and model of your printer and after that, I will provide you the steps to change this.

    And what file were you trying to print?

    Let me know.

    Regards,

    Printer is printing with black background and white font

    I have just moved house and just had Windows 10 installed on my computer and have got a secondhand printer, a Xerox DocuPrint M265z connected to my computer and it is printing with a black background and white font. The test print from the printer comes
    out normal but printing from the computer comes out with black background and white font. How do I fix this please.
